    My Old Kentucky Home

    My Old Kentucky Home

    "My Old Kentucky Home," originally titled "Poor Uncle Tom, Good Night!," is the state song of Kentucky.

    The facts surrounding the composition of this song point to the influence of Uncle Tom's Cabin rather than a visit to Kentucky. Foster may or may not have visited his cousins in Bardstown, Kentucky at their mansion Federal Hill, but the original sketch of this song, dating from 1852, substitutes "Poor Uncle Tom" for "My Old Kentucky Home" and aligns Foster's sympathies with the Abolitionist movement.

    Original Lyrics (composed by Foster):

    Verse 1:

    The sun shines bright in the old Kentucky home,

    ‘Tis summer, the darkies are gay;

    The corn-top’s ripe and the meadow’s in the bloom,

    While the birds make music all the day.

    The young folks roll on the little cabin floor,

    All merry, all happy and bright;

    By ‘n’ by Hard Times comes a-knocking at the door,

    Then my old Kentucky home, goodnight.

    Chorus:

    Weep no more my lady

    Oh! weep no more today!

    We will sing one song for the old Kentucky home,

    For the Old Kentucky Home far away.

    Verse 2:

    They hunt no more for the possum and the coon,

    On meadow, the hill and the shore,

    They sing no more by the glimmer of the moon,

    On the bench by the old cabin door.

    The day goes by like a shadow o’er the heart,

    With sorrow, where all was delight,

    The time has come when the darkies have to part,

    Then my old Kentucky home, goodnight.

    Chorus Verse 3:

    The head must bow and the back will have to bend,

    Wherever the darky may go;

    A few more days, and the trouble all will end,

    In the field where the sugar-canes grow;

    A few more days for to tote the weary load,

    No matter, ’twill never be light;

    A few more days till we totter on the road,

    Then my old Kentucky home, goodnight.

    Chorus

    Revised Lyrics (from 1968):

    The sun shines bright in My Old Kentucky home,

    ‘Tis summer, and people are gay;

    The corn-top’s ripe and the meadow’s in the bloom

    While the birds make music all the day.

    The young folks roll on the little cabin floor

    All merry, all happy and bright;

    By ‘n’ by hard times comes a knocking at the door

    Then My Old Kentucky Home, good night!

    Weep no more my lady

    Oh! weep no more today!

    We will sing one song

    For My Old Kentucky Home

    For My Old Kentucky Home, far away.

    My Old Kentucky Home Lyrics

    Turpentine and dandelion wine, I've turned the corner, an' I'm doin' fine.

    Shootin' at the birds on the telephone line; Pickin' 'em off with this gun o' mine.

    Got a fire in my belly and a fire in my head, Going higher and higher 'til I'm dead.

    Sister Sue is short and stout, She didn't grow up, she grew out.

    Momma says she's plain, but she's just being kind.

    Papa thinks she's pretty, but he's almost blind.

    Don't let her out much except at night.

    But I don't care 'cause I'm all right.

    Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home.

    Young folks roll on the floor.

    Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home.

    Keep them hard times away from my door.

    Brother Gene is big and mean, And he don't have much to say.

    He had a little woman who he whooped each day, But now she's gone away.

    Got drunk last night, kicked momma down the stairs, But I'm all right, so I don't care.

    Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home.

    And the young folks are rollin' on the floor.

    Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home.

    Keep them hard times away from my door.

    Turpentine and dandelion wine, I've turned the corner, an' I'm doin' fine.

    Shootin' at the birds on the telephone line; Pickin' 'em off with this gun o' mine.

    Got a fire in my belly and a fire in my head, Goin' higher and higher 'till I'm dead.

    Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home.

    And the young folks are rollin' on the floor.

    Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home.

    Keep them hard times away from my door.

    Keep them hard times away from my door.

    "My Old Kentucky Home"

    Early draft of My Old Kentucky Home by Foster

    Song

    Written c. 1852-1853

    Published January 1853

    Genre Traditional / Folk

    Songwriter(s) Stephen C. Foster

    Composer(s) Stephen C. Foster

    Lyricist(s) Stephen C. Foster

    "My Old Kentucky Home, Good-Night!" is a sentimental ballad written by Stephen Foster, probably composed in 1852.[1][2][3] It was published in January 1853 by Firth, Pond, & Co. of New York.[1][4] Foster was likely inspired by Harriet Beecher Stowe's anti-slavery novel as evidenced by the title of a sketch in Foster’s sketchbook, “Poor Uncle Tom, Good-Night!”

    Interpretations of the song vary widely. Frederick Douglass wrote in his 1855 autobiography that the song "awakens sympathies for the slave, in which antislavery principles take root, grow, and flourish".[5][6] However, the song’s publication by Firth & Pond as a minstrel song and its use in “Tom shows” (stagings of Stowe’s novel of varying degrees of sincerity and faithfulness to the original text), and other settings, have clouded its reception.[2][3]

    Creation and career impact[edit]

    The creation of the song "My Old Kentucky Home, Good-Night!" established a decisive moment within Stephen Foster's career in regard to his personal beliefs on the institution of slavery as following the publishing of the song, Foster began to abandon minstrelsy and writing music with African-American vernacular.[7] It also is an example of the common theme of the loss of home, which is prevalent throughout Foster's work. Foster was greatly inspired by Harriet Beecher Stowe's abolitionist novel which appeared in bookstores in Foster's hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in March 1852. The novel, written about the plight of an enslaved person in Kentucky, had a profound effect on Foster's future songwriting by altering the tone of his music to sympathize the position of the enslaved person. In his notebook, Foster penned the lyrics inspired by Stowe's novel, initially named "Poor Old Uncle Tom, Good-Night!" Foster ultimately removed references to Stowe's book, renaming the work, "My Old Kentucky Home, Good-Night!"

    Foster's brother Morrison indicated in correspondence in 1898 that Foster was an "occasional visitor" to the plantation of their cousins the Rowan Family known as Federal Hill. No evidence exists to confirm that Foster was inspired by imagery seen at Federal Hill for the song's composition, and the imagery in the song does not include any specific markers to Federal Hill. The Foster and Rowan family's close relationship appears to have been initiated through Stephen's sister Charlotte, who stayed with the Rowans at Federal Hill in 1828. While Charlotte lived with the Rowan family, Atkinson Hill Rowan made a proposal of marriage to her, which she ultimately declined.[8] Charlotte died in the home of George Washing Barclay, a cousin of both families, with Atkinson Hill Rowan at her bedside.[9]

    The song "My Old Kentucky Home, Good-Night!" is one of many examples of the loss of home in Foster's work. Biographers believe that this common theme originated from the loss of Foster's childhood home, known as the "White Cottage", an estate his mother referred to as an Eden, in reference to the Garden of Eden. The family was financially supported by the family patriarch William Foster, who owned vast holdings, which were lost through bad business dealings that left the family destitute and unable to keep possession of the White Cottage; the family was forced to leave the estate when Stephen Foster was three years old. After years of financial instability and the sharing of memories of the White Cottage with Stephen by his parents and siblings, the impact of longing for a permanent home that was no longer available to him greatly influenced his writing.[7]

    Public sentiment[edit]

    Frederick Douglass in 1856

    Upon its release in 1853 by Firth, Pond & Company,[10] "My Old Kentucky Home, Good-Night" grew quickly in popularity, selling thousands of copies. The song's popular and nostalgic theme of the loss of home resonated with the public and received support from some within the abolitionist movement in the United States. For example, African-American abolitionist Frederick Douglass promoted the song, among other similar songs of the time period, in his autobiography as evoking a sentimental theme that promotes and popularizes the cause of abolishing slavery in the United States. Douglass commented, "They [My Old Kentucky Home, Good-Night!, etc.] are heart songs, and the finest feelings of human nature are expressed in them. [They] can make the heart sad as well as merry, and can call forth a tear as well as a smile. They awaken the sympathies for the slave", he stated, "in which anti-slavery principles take root and flourish".[11]
